Good Governance: A practical guide for trustees, chairs and CEOs
Good Governance: a practical guide for trustees, chairs and CEOs is a new publication written by leading governance expert Dorothy Dalton.
For the first time this new guide brings together a range of publications including the best selling Good Governance: the chair's role and Good Governance: the chief executive's role updated with the latest information.
The publication highlights key issues to consider, alongside templates and real-life examples and experiences.
Good Governance is written for chairs, chief executives and trustees. Chapter 5 is written specifically for the chair while the primary audience for chapter 6 is the chief executive. Trustees are advised to include both these chapters in their reading as it will give them a better understanding of the role of the chair and the chief executive in good governance.
This publication is primarily aimed at organisations with staff. Smaller organisations may benefit from the information outlined in this publication, but they are not the primary audience and as such may need to adapt the information for their circumstances.
- Fundamentals of good governance
- Delegating authority
- The role of the chair and the chief executive
- Reflecting and improving board effectiveness
